Security Hole in Blackboard

September 23, 2011 by Sarah Cheverton Blackboard, News  No Comments

Here’s a link to the online article about the recently discovered “zero-day” security hole in Blackboard that would allow a hacker to change grades and steal student information: http://www.scmagazineus.com/zero-day-holes-found-in-blackboard-platform/article/212156/.

I created a PDF of the article in case the link disappears: http://sites.jmu.edu/lms/wp-content/plugins/shorty/dropbox/Dropbox/LMS_Documents/Zero-day_holes_found_in_Blackboard_platform_-_Print_Article_-_SC_Magazine_US.pdf
